  Made with good intentions and plenty of sympathy for the suffering of its victimized subjects, "Rosenstrasse" — an earnest Holocaust tale from German director/screenwriter Margarethe von Trotta — is heavy on the melodrama. The argument that it deserves to be emotion-drenched because of the weight of its theme is valid, but the fictionalizations can be stagy and manipulative, and the framing sequences in present-day New York and Berlin are often stilted. "Rosenstrasse" is spun from historical circumstance, and those aspects of the film are powerful. In 1943, on a Berlin street called Rosenstrasse, there was a building used by the Nazis as a holding pen for Jewish men rounded up for deportation to the death camps. Hundreds of Aryan women, some of whom were married to Jews, held a vigil outside the lock-up and protested to get their husbands released by the Gestapo. In von Trotta's movie, a little Jewish girl named Ruth (Svea Lohde) is separated from her parents and befriended and protected by musician Lena Fischer (Katja Riemann), a protester hoping to free her husband. Years later, the 90-year-old Lena (Doris Schade) recounts the story of the Rosenstrasse demonstration to Ruth's grown-up daughter Hannah (Maria Schrader), a New Yorker visiting Berlin. Intercut flashbacks dovetail Lena's tale of personal crisis with Ruth's odyssey and Hannah's search for the past.
